Woman Rents Out Three-Story Home To Exhibit Her Creepy Collection Of 2,000 DOLLS
On 27th March 2021
Although she lives in another property nearby, a nurse rents a three-story home to store her massive collection of 2,000 dolls worth £85,000 that she has accumulated over the years. The nurse stays in a nearby apartment and makes regular visits to the dollhouse.
Eleonore Goedert, 63, of Koblenz, Germany, visits the creepy 10-room house every day since she was 13 years old and purchased her first doll in 1971.
Despite the toys having their large property, the German lives alone in a nearby apartment.
Eleonore bought her first doll for about £350 and decided she wanted to buy as many as she could.
She said: "I bought my first doll with my first ever paycheque."
Since then, she has amassed a collection of approximately 2,000 dolls, 400 of which she made herself.
She claimed that many of them needed repair work, including the replacement of missing eyes or legs, as well as the filling of holes in their heads.
The nurse, on the other hand, denied that she adored her dolls, suggesting instead that she was committed to their upkeep.
She said: "You can only really love people".
Eleonore, a mother, insisted that the toys are "not a substitute for living people or children."
The 63-year-old claims she never names her dolls and only uses numbers.
Eleonore also began her own doll consulting company about 30 years ago, conducting seminars and workshops.
She was able to save enough money as a result of this experience to begin building her extensive collection.
She claimed to have spent more than £85,000 on dolls.
"In the past, girls felt like mothers with their dolls," Eleonore says.
“Today, all girls want to look like their Barbies, have their lips injected and their breasts enlarged."
Eleonore gave tours of her dollhouse before the unfolding pandemic. For adults, a ticket to the event costs £3.
She said: "You can't get rich with it, but I will never sell my dolls. I live for them.”
